Prime Technology LLC has introduced the RTD-500 series of programmable temperature simulators that is designed specifically for performing highly accurate calibration of temperature controllers.

The RTD-500 provides a temperature simulation range from -200∼C to 850∼C. Temperature stability is better than 1ppm/∼C and the unit is capable of 2-, 3- and 4-wire sensor simulation. The resistance range for the unit is 16次 to 10,000次. The accuracy of resistance at 16-400次 is 0.003 percent (㊣3m次); from 400-2,000次 the accuracy is 0.005 percent, and from 2,000-10,000次, 0.015 percent. The simulator operates within a temperature range of 5∼C to 40∼C and a voltage of 100-240Vac/50-60Hz.

The unit also features a simple keypad operation for selection of temperature or resistance and a backlit LCD display for easy viewing. The RTD-500 is programmable via a RS232 computer interface. Weighing less than 9lbs and enclosed in a metal housing make the simulator portable and rugged.

Pricing starts at $3,995. Devices are currently in stock.
